Daddy Lost His Strength


“Dad is not coming” is a journey of family, told through Raz’s innocent eyes, Shay’s youngest son.
It is a life journey alongside dealing with the father’s illness, which is inspiring due to choosing life and finding meaning  even under the most challenging situation. The story is flooding emotions such as fear, anger, shame and also pride, hope and love.

The book is based on a true story, and the joint work on the book by family members was part of the family own journey. Each family shapes its personal story when dealing with a crisis such as a serious illness, depending on the way it sees life and its coping style. However, through the sensitive eyes of Raz and through his questions and thoughts we are getting the possibility to observe intersections, dilemmas and joint stops. This exciting book illustrates in a child simplicity complex and challenging struggles .
